Percolator | Nails DIY

I had planned a different nail DIY but some of the nails got ruined because I wasn’t patient and didn’t let them dry properly. So, I ended up creating a different look and I’m happier with it because the other one was too similar to last week’s. 

This look doesn’t require a lot of time and I’m simply in love with its simplicity!   

You need:

> White nail polish (or a light color that goes with black)

> Black nail pen

> Finish coat (optional but strongly recommended)  

> First, paint your nails white  
> Then grab the pen and draw circles on your nails. I drew them only in certain areas but you can fill the whole nail with circles for a funkier look!  

> Let dry for a while and then apply the finish coat. I strongly recommend using a finish coat when using the pen because it actually washes off really easy and messes everything up!   

And that’s it! It’s so easy and minimalistic. Perfect for when you don’t have a ton of time :)

I think I’ll be posting a nail DIY every Monday from now on. Hopefully! I’ll also be posting them on Sparkle. Which by the way, if you’re on Sparkle you should totally follow me! My user name is “thecolorsofana” (of course!). If you’re not familiar with Sparkle, no worries, I will be writing a blog post on my favorite social media platforms within the next couple of days :)

Anyway, this is such a fun an easy nail DIY, especially if you’re a fan of funky like I am ;)  

You need:

> Scotch tape 

> Scissors

> 2 or more nail polish of different colors

> Nail polish finisher (optional but recommended)  

> First, cut a piece of tape, somewhat large, and paint it with 1 or more different colors of nail polish and set it aside to dry. I did 3 colors. 

> Then go ahead and paint your nails! I painted mine blue and pink-ish/orange.  

> Once the tape and your nails are completely dry, go ahead and cut tiny triangles of tape and place them randomly on your nails.  

> Once you’re done, apply one to two coats of nail polish finisher to secure the tape and you’re done! :)  

I did this Saturday afternoon and have gotten sooo many compliments on them so far :) Have fun! 

Pastel nails DIY

When I was younger I didn’t paint my nails a whole lot, but lately I’ve been getting into it. Thing is, I get bored of plain color really fast, so I though I’d come up with a fun design for my nails and share it with you guys. 
So for those of you who want their nails to look fun and funky, you need:

-2 to 3 different colors of nail polish 

-Scissors

-Scotch tape

-A tiny paint brush that you don’t care about

-A couple of tissues to clean the mess 

 
>Cut little triangles of tape and stick them on as many nails as you want   

>Paint the nails with the triangles one color and the rest of the nails with a different color of nail polish  

 
>Once the nails polish dries, remove the little triangles very carefully and clean the sides of your nails (just in case you’re messy like me!)  

>Grab the paint brush and go crazy with polka dots! 

  
 As you can see, I didn’t do exactly the same design on any of my nails. I just wanted to try something new. You can replicate exactly what I did or you can try new things as well! It’s really easy :)
…Oh, and don’t forget to wash your little paint brush with some nail polish remover so that it doesn’t get ruined!
